PS3 as TV converter?

by csiagerard / January 28, 2009 3:06 AM PST

Anyone know if I could route my antenna thru my PS3? They're going to have DVR capability soon according to their tech support but I'm concerned about losing my signal that I get thru my antenna.
(yes, I'm one of those that is unloading my dish due to costs)

Thanks in advance

The PS3 doesn't have a tuner card inside of it and cannot be used as a converter.

Will PlayTV work with US broadcasts? Or is that a stupid question?
